Unsurprisingly, the conclusion from all this is that worrying about technology, arms races, and so on is completely pointless because by far the biggest problem remains the fact that people are stupid. It's all very well saying that hackers are ahead of defenders, but as long as people are desperate to throw all their credentials and personal information at anyone and everyone who asks for them, there's not really a lot said defenders can do.
